I know that this is something you hear all the time when it comes to auto insurance. You see it in all the commercials and read it in advertisements. However, this is one thing that you can really believe from advertisers. Comparison shopping can mean paying $100 per month or $300 per month. This is because each quote is not identical and each company bases their decision to insure (and at what rate) on different factors. There are some that are just more competitive than others and some that use different underwriters who have different standards for figuring rates. When you comparison shop you ensure that the deal you get is the very best. Plus, once the insurance companies know you are “shopping around”, they may become more competitive!
Insurance underwriters take many things into consideration when figuring your rate. The most important thing they factor in is your driving history/record. The following are looked upon the most:
- Moving violations
- Auto accidents
- License status (Active/Suspended/Revoked)
- Driving while impaired (DUI/DWI)
- Driving without a license
- Anything else that would put points on your license
While we all make mistakes, ultimately we are the ones who have control over what our driving history says and therefore we can play a huge role in what our rates will be. In order to keep things looking good, follow the speed limit, follow all the rules of the road and do not text and drive or talk on your phone and drive. Not only is it dangerous to do, it is also a good way to get high insurance rates. If you follow these tips you will be able to find the best deals on auto insurance and save a lot of money.
